cleared their schedule for debate rehearsals. the president's practicing right now at nevada. mitt romney's resuming his practice sessions after a welcoming rally tonight in denver. both sides downplaying expectations. but cnn's chief political correspondent candy crowley who's moderating, by the way, the second presidential debate, noticed one high-profile exception. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. s.o.p. for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy, like this -- >> president obama's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy, like this -- >> we've expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history, showing himself to be a very good debater. >> reporter: since you are supporting romney, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of t
voters view this is negative for mitt romney. >> governor barbour, i want to put up a chart right now. it comes from the "new york times" after that 47% comment right here, you see it right there, look at how it opens up in that last week and a half, that was damaging? >> well, it may well end being damaging. the biggest thing that's damaging mitt romney, this campaign is all about process, it's about polling, campaign management. it's about everything but the issues. it's about everything but obama policies. and the failures of those policies. >> how does that turn that around? >> stay totally focused on the fact for most americans, you can't tell the difference between the recession and the recovery. in fact, since this department data came out this last month, the average american family lost $2,500 of income during the obama recovery. they only lost $1,500 worth of income during the recession. no wonder they don't think that the recession is over. >> donna, that's kind of astonishing. the national journal put it as president obama defying gravity. income is going down. yet the pre
has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he has to be able to litigate and make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. folks believe the economy is bad right now but what they don't actually believe is it is the president's fault. he has to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him that the president is the one to blame for the economy we've got right now. >> there is something going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he is showing disrespect to the president but if he doesn't, then he looks defer yen shl. coach me, tell me how to walk on that stage -- deferential. coach me without being deferential? >> it's a matter of tone and how you address the president. as long as governor romney addresses the president with mr. president, your policies have failed the american people. i think as long as he carries a respectful tone. he needs to be what i would say as p
to happen in this presidential election right now. mitt romney needs to draw the contrast. i think that mitt romney needs to say something along the line, when i was saving the olympics after 9-11, where was barak obama? who do you want? make the decision. this is a country in crisis once again. economic security, energy security, national security. so draw the contrast. i think that's what we tried to do in this ad. >> steve: larry sabato said that ad that you're running now is the most devastating contrast ad he's ever seen before. >> my team will be very happy to have that. now i got to give a trophy or something, i guess. >> eric: colonel, we have to read this statement. this is from mr. murphy, his campaign. he said, quote, allen west is shamelessly attacking him for a mistake he made as a teen-ager, which he had discussed at length in the media as a mistake learned from. >> first of all, no one down in south florida knew about this and had not been discussed. i think it's represencible that they should talk about a contrast when they started off running ads with me stealing money from
. >> chris: suppose that the doubters are right and president romney takes office and the math doesn't add up. >> i have run them in congress and they do. >> chris: let's assume it doesn't. the question is what is most important to romney? kale bacscale back in the 20% r the wealthy or scale back and say we have to raise taxes for the middle class? the question is what is most important to him in the tax reform plan? >> keeping tax rates down by lowering tax rates people keep more of the next dollar that they earn. that matters. sin cent ives and progrowth policy and creates 7 million jobs. >> chris: that is more important. >> more important than anything. and it is not what deductions are in the tax code but who gets them and don't forget that the higher income people have a disproportionate amount of the loopholes that they use. when you close a tax write-off or tax shelter for a higher income person more of their income is subject to taxation so you can lower tax rates. where we go is by denying the deductions and loopholes to higher income people which allows us is to lower tax rates for
mitt romney a apology. he was right. waited 15 hours, the concerns that silence and weak statement out of cairo was inappropriate response. he was right. the obama administration waited 15 hours as the administration developed. their first reaction was to go after mitt romney. the mead yu followed that and we're finding mitt romney was right. this administration had a very weak reaction to a growing threat and people need to wonder what would have happened if the president came out an condemned this hours as it was happening before the ambassador was killed. gregg: rick, thank you very much. appreciate it. jenna: more on that story throughout the day for sure. meantime a powerful typhoon toppling trees and power lines and proving deadly. where this storm is hitting, we have that just ahead. >>> plus independent voters, they were key to putting president obama in the white house but could independents be turning the other direction, more towards governor romney? a debate, fair and balanced ahead. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about that 401(k) you picked up back in the '80s. tdd#: 1-8
is not. they want to fight hard. mitt romney's adopted home state there, if you will. >> right, so he'll be doing that for sure in new hampshire and then in ohio today. okay, thank you very much, ron mott appreciate that. >>> let's get more on the president's surge in the polls. he is increasing his lead in a number of key swing states. he's leading in all nine nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls taken over the last three weeks. let's talk about what's happening from the gop perspective. because some there are complaining about the polling. they say the pollsters are oversampling democrats. any legitimacy to any of these complaints? >> well, you know, alex one of the things that we often find is that the side that's complaining about polling or the media usually the side that's down. so, that's i think more of what's happening here, rather than the polls being skewed in some way. i mean, i think our pollsters, you know, we use a republican polling firm. we use with a democratic polling firm. they're, you know, have great reputations, and they try their best to match these numbers a
if that's even possible right now. the public broadly speaking expects mitt romney to win. low expectations i suppose. the history as your comments suggest is that debates don't tend to change the trajectory of a presidential race very much. there has been a few cases where they have but just a few you are looking at this stage if you are a romney voter or fan for something that would change the apparent course of the election which you look at the thing nationally and it appears to be a pretty tight race. if you look at it in the key states. president obama appears to be ahead nearly everywhere. and by a significant margins in some places such as ohio where it's several points. now, you can't say that it's over. it certainly is not straight line projections are very dangerous in politics. things can change. always on the lookout for something to change it debate might much although it hasn't happened very often. >> bill: i think it's going to happen this year one way or the other. this is the stat that i will point to the rat muffin poll has the president up by three which is
if karl rove doesn't like how mitt romney does tomorrow night, he could give a lot of that $60 million, the biggest chunk of change, to, i don't know, senate candidates, congressional candidates, and not romney. >> that's right, erin. there are a lot of republicans and democrats who are very closely watching what these outside groups -- and it's not just the super pacs we have the money for and the finances. but also these 5014 c nonprofit groups raising a ton more money, the karl rove gps, the koch brothers, americans for prosperity. and there is a feeling that if mitt romney starts to look like he can't win, that they will pull the plug on him, and start diverting the money that they otherwise would have spent on his campaign, on congressional campaigns, and that really underscores the difference between these sort of post citizens united elections where the power and the determination of viability is really being made by these outside groups versus before where you had the parties being able to decide, hey, we think this candidate has a chance. and in 1996, for instance, we saw the
in pennsylvania this afternoon, mitt romney made this bold promise. >> you're right, they're wrong, and we'll win pennsylvania and take the white house. >> reporter: but for that to happen with polls showing him trailing the president, analysts say romney must change the trajectory of the race. in a discussion, he acknowledged this is an important opportunity. >> and i think it will give people a chance to understand where we actually stand, as opposed to where our opposition thinks we stand. and then they can make a more informed choice. >> reporter: while both candidates are practicing in private, president obama held a closed-door session this afternoon. and publicly their campaigns are showering the opponents with praise. a message from one expert outlines romney's skills as a prepared, aggressive, debater. the romney campaign is touting president obama's natural gifts and the extensive seasoning under the bright lights of the bright stage. today, in a mock debate, senator john kerry dismissed the idea that the republican nominee is an inexperienced debater, pointing to more than 20 debates.
in the right way? that line of argument and attack with press scrutiny and mitt romney making the case should be part of the debate. and i think will be because this story does have a lot of unanswered questions. >> mika, as we've been saying for some time both on and off the air, if the president was george w. bush and he had said that the middle east going up in flames was a, quote, bump in the road, george w. bush would have been absolutely skewered by the press. >> at the same time, is it fair to say that the romney campaign and mitt romney himself have seized upon things too quickly and almost looked a little almost like a dog pulling on someone's leg? >> they've been hand-fisted. >> let me ask you this. >> they made a mistake. in fact, even internally inside the romney campaign, they know now that the libyan press conference, the day after, they will all tell you, was an absolute mistake, and that showed up in the polls. >> here's my question, then. because congressman peter king is calling on susan rice to step down, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the re
right because romney is selling t-shirts praising joe biden's honesty. >> i think we are starting this deof --starting this debate wita little honesty. we are seeing a huge amount of debt piles on it was four years ago this president dazzled us in debate saying he understood the problems this country faced. he knew the magnitude of the issues the country had to get through. but he had the right solution. here we are four years later and he still hasn't accomplished any of what he set out to do. that will be the biggest hurdle he has to overcome tonight looking back saying why didn't he accomplish anything he did with a democratic congress for the first two years of his administration. megyn: the point the vice president was trying to make was that he was saying the non-partisan tax policy center argued romney's tax plan will push a higher tax burdennen onto the middle class. >> it as liberal think tank that would take any numbers we put out and say it was bad. the fact of the matter is an independent study said it would lower middle class tax burden and governor romney's plans tal
people in the romney campaign, think it can wait, and want to do his foreign policy right before that debate, so there's some bringing together of these arguments. i think the time is now. you had governor romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know, how has the administration handled it? he said, look, it's too early to judge it. that's not the right answer. they've handled it incorrectly. basically everybody across the political spectrum thinks they've handled it incorrectly. i wouldn't leave it to the super pacs to do my work for me. this is exactly the type of ads that conservatives are looking for. >> it appears the romney campaign got brushed back because of the criticism. >> greta: you mean they got gun-shy? >> exactly. as the folks began to show that the obama administration's story was not holding up, that there were serious problems with security there, and perhaps in other places around the world, they didn't jump on it. and, you know, if you wait until when the foreign policy debate is scheduled, which is three weeks from now, that's way too long for this
right now. >> tonight, the baseball player who scored a triple crown. but we begin with governor mitt romney back on the campaign trail tonight after what most americans are calling a big victory in his first debate against president obama. even the man in charge of president obama's campaign admits he will probably change his strategy for the next debate. governor romney and his running mate paul ryan are holding a rally right now in the battleground state of virginia. we'll go there live in a moment. that's trace at begins on stage. today, the president was back on the campaign trail, too. he told a crowd in denver the guy he faced off against last night was not the real governor romney. >> he said that he doesn't even know that there is such laws that encourage outsourcing. he says that if it's true he must need a new account stand. [ laughter ] now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. >> the romney campaign fired back, quote: president obama offered no defense of his record and no vision for the futu
? is governor christie right, will this turn the presidential race upside down in byron? >> mitt romney at the south carolina primary, newt gingrich cleaned his clock. helhelp headedthey were headed o florida. romney felt he had his back to the wall, and he beat gingrich in both debates in florida. that's the spirit romney needs. he needs to do that well. >> greta: will he, steve hayes? reticent on this libya thing, he backed away a little bit. >> yeah. i think the tone of the romney campaign, particularly over the last week, has been a softer tone. they haven't wanted to be as confrontational with president obama. you have this line that mitt romney has been saying now throughout the entire, you know, election, president obama's a really nice guy, he's in over his head. i don't think that's the right attitude to take into the debate. i think he'll have to be aggressive. he'll have to be confrontational. doesn't mean he has to be nasty. there's a difference, but he has to be very aggressive, look like he's being aggressive to the viewers. >> greta: when he says he's over his head, that'
new race with 33 days to go. >> governor christie right in the sense that romney needs to change the dynamic of the race. a new "washington post"/abc news survey find 5s 5% of voters think the president will win the debates compared to 31% who believe rom wil win. romney adviser tell "the new york times" they're aiming to make the president come off as condescending or smug. that characterized obama's notable gaffe during the 2008 primary when hillary clinton was asked what she would say to voters who seemed to like barack obama more. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> governor romney's 23 debate performances during the republican primary his weakness showed when he allowed competitors to get und her is skin prompting irritated off script moments that gave a new meaning to the #awkward. >> anderson -- >> you say you knew. >> would you please wait? >> are you just going to deep talking? >> yes, sir. >> let me finish what i have to say i'm running for office i can't have ill heels. >> when will yo
, right? there is a hunger for an alternative foreign policy plan but mitt romney isn't prepared to give any specifics. >> and to the extent that no one has -- it's like his economic policy, it has uncomfortable shades of the past republican administration, so, you know, if there's a need for a lot of new aproechls to those various foreign policy points they are not a return to neocon dog ma from the bush administration. i will say the argument for why -- i don't -- i do not believe they are engaged in a conspiracy, but the argument for why you would want to be engaged in a conspiracy is that president obama's foreign policy, largely rest on the notion he's largely decapitated al qaeda over the last four years and if al qaeda is still a dangerous force in the middle east you would lose ground on the strength of the claims he's made, not just? killing osama bin laden but in decapitating al qaeda across the board. as i said i don't believe that to be the case and i think there are serious foreign policy issues around this but more to why was the consulate not more well fortified, chris ste
of a warning to you. >> i will not gloat. i will never gloat. >> you may be right and that's okay. romney took a machete and lifted newt gingrich's head off. and later on romney took maybe a different cleaner machete and took rick santorum's head off. obama on the other hand has been surrounded by doughy psycho fans, he hasn't been in any hand to hand combat. he hasn't had any debating experience, he's gone soft. that's why romney might just pull a real upset here. >> i'm not playing a game, i'm being very honest with you, i these president obama does great in front of the teleprompter, and i'm biting my nails over this. now that having been said -- >> he's likable. >> but this notion of national polling numbers is a farce. this election is going to be decided in the swing states. obama has a nine point lead in ohio? you guys are suggesting that the debate is going to change everything. >> to larry says romney has a machete and he's taking heads off in the primary debate. you say there's a small group of undecided voters that romney still needs to capture. i'm not hearing from the romney peopl
>> paul: that is it for this edition. thanks to my panel. i'm paul gigot. we hope to see you right here next week. >>> on fox news watch. a week of anticipation as the news media got set for the big debates. >> governor romney doesn't have to want charm offensive but he has to prove he can related to average american voters. >> but a big win for romney and big shocker for the mainstream press. >> where was the president? where was the fight? >> liberal media trying to spin the outcome and did he have their man. >> did you really mean to call barack obama lazy. to call him lazy.... >> new details about the murders in libya. but that was missed by most in the news business. a video clip from the president's past gets new attention for what was said. how did the media react and is it fair game? spanish channel univision gets high marks for covering fast and furious scandal. and weather channel heats up controversy about winter storms. >> jon: on the panel this week, writer fox news contributor, judyiller. also richard grenell. jing pinkerton and talk radio news bureau chief ellen ratn
